My wife’s NC10 has a markedly sharper display than mine. And her colors are more true: If we go to the same website, her white is a perfect white, and mine is a little yellowish.
I guess it’s sort of subtle, but when I see her display it’s stunning how sharp it is, and when you look at them side-by-side, it is unmistakeable. I’ve checked monitor/display settings, and everything looks identical (including max brightness). I don’t notice any of the “blotches” that I’ve read about on here. (We’ve had hers about 3 weeks longer than we’ve had mine)
Any thoughts on this? Could there be that much normal variablity in the NC10?

if it’s that noticeable, I wouldn’t think it’s normal deviation.February 28, 2009 at 7:00 am #185159MarkRMember
Hello – you might want to take a look at this thread on colour calibration
– I have set my NC10 up this way, and it looks better than my wife’s.February 28, 2009 at 11:55 am #185160adatay92Member
This wouldn’t explain the colour differences but do you have cleartype smoothing enabled on one and not the other?February 28, 2009 at 5:43 pm #185163RudjMember
the white model has a matte (anti-glare) screen type while the others (blue and black) don’t, or so i was told…February 28, 2009 at 5:51 pm #185161AlfiharParticipant
It is possible to have a fairly large difference between two screens of the same type/model. Especially if they are from different batches.
I have exactly the same situation with the two identical screens attached to my desktop. The only way of fixing it is to colour calibrate the screens, or rather just your laptops screen in this case.

That’s referring to the lid rather than the screen itself. The standard NC10’s (not the special edition) should all have the same matt screen.
